China emitted more greenhouse gases (GHG) than the United States and all other developed countries combined in 2019, according to a report published on May 6 by New York-based research firm Rhodium Group.
When we think about the deserts of the world, water abundance is one of the last things that come to mind. But that might change for the Taklamakan Desert in northwest China.
While studying the amount of carbon dioxide in the desert’s air, a team of researchers was surprised to learn that large amounts of the greenhouse gas were disappearing around a region of the desert called the Tarim basin.
- Data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shows how Arctic sea ice cover has changed from 1979-2001.
- It shows an overall downward trajectory over that period.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) recognizes the positive contributions that the women in the Office have made to help strengthen the future of bioenergy.
- Canada is one of 55 countries planning to conserve 30% of its land and water by 2030, to stem the negative effects of climate change.
- The goal comes from the High Ambition Coalition for People and Nature, a United Nations initiative.

The Advancing the Bioeconomy: From Waste to Conversion-Ready Feedstocks Workshop, coordinated by the Bioenergy Technologies Office, gathered experts in the fields of waste management, solid materials handling, and biofuel and bioproduct development and production to give presentations.
The workshop explored the potential of using the various components of the municipal solid waste stream (i.e., yard waste, unrecycled paper, food waste, and plastics) to produce feedstock for fuels, chemicals, and products. This document provides an overview of the presentations and breakout session discussions.
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Plant-based biofuels can play a key role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and removing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and growing these crops in certain landscapes offers net climate benefits compared to other land use options, according to a team of international scientists.
